    I can't find the original recipe/ source, but I'm sure it's been tweaked since we started making it.  Really tasty dish and the char from the Egg just puts it over the top.

    @DFW, excellent recipe. I made it tonight using six smaller sized boneless chicken breast. I pounded the breast to around 1/2 inch thick and cut into rectangular pieces. I marinated the chicken for two hours and then put it onto wooden skewers. I grilled it over charcoal using the the flat side of Grillgrates in order to achieve a good char.
    This chicken was the best I have had in a long time.

    Thanks for posting the recipe.

    Thanks for the recipe. I tried lemon grass years ago and neither my wife nor I could take all the teeth grinding needed to swallow that “grass”. Guess I should follow your advice this time!

    @GregW - I bet the skewers made a really nice presentation, awesome call. May have to do the same next time. Glad it turned out well!
